Sometimes to get my best work done I need some noise in the background, but podcast or vocal music tends to suck me into the music as opposed to helping me focus on the work at hand. If you’re the type who enjoys non-vocal electronica in the background while you get stuff done, workout or read, Focusmusic.fm delivers. Besides streaming great focus music at no cost, the simple, minimal interface with few controls and no playlists or other interface noisiness to pull you in keeps you from getting distracted.
There’s a big play/pause button, a forward button and back button, that’s it. You don’t even get to see the name of the track that’s playing. Press play, switch tabs, and get back to work!
It’s pretty upbeat, unlike a lot of focus music out there, definitely my new head down, sweat it out, Zwift playlist.
